Aleta Williams, trailblazing journalist with deep church connection, dies at age 94 - TheChronicleHerald.caThursday, April 12, 2018
She was also a member of the board of the United Way of Pictou County, the African United Baptist Association, AUBA Women’s Institute, Black United Front of Nova Scotia, Pictou County Council of Churches, Pictou County Seniors Festival and Aberdeen Hospital Palliative Care. Her volunteerism did not go unnoticed as she was the recipient of awards from the Black Cultural Centre, United Way, Pictou County Music Festival as well as a cultural heritage award from the Town of New Glasgow to name a few.
“I have been here (in Pictou County) since 1989 and what always amazed me was her quiet gentleness and anything you asked her do, it was done excellently,” said Rev. Dr. Glen Matheson of New Glasgow.
Aleta Williams: The first African Nova Scotian to work in the province’s mainstream media. She worked for The Evening News in New Glasgow for 20 years and continued to write for the newspaper well into her 80s. #newglasgow#aletawilliams#violadesmondpic.twitter.com/PKj0oaH9C4 — Michael de Adder (@deAdder) April 12, 2018
Many people will remember Williams for her career accomplishment as the first African Nova Scotian to work in the province’s mainstream media.
But this wasn’t the job that Williams was looking for when she sat down for an interview with Harry Sutherland, owner of The Evening News, now known as The News. She had applied for a position in business administration but Sutherland was so impressed with her, he asked her to work in his editorial department. She accepted and within a few months was named women’s editor.
“Aleta is a true pillar in her community and has been a trailblazer her entire life, without even realizing it,” said Jackie Jardine, editor of the Pictou Advocate and former community editor at The News. “She went to work at a time when most women were just entering the workforce and continued to work long after retirement. In fact, she was still writing newspaper columns when she was well into her 80s.”
For 20 years, she worked as family and community editor for The Evening News and was known for putting people at ease. Widowed at a young age and while most of her children were still at home, she never missed their school, music or sports events. Nor did she cut back on her commitments to her church or her community involvement.
“As a journalist, she knew her community,” said Dave Glenen, regional editor for Nova Scotia for Saltwire Network. “As we chased the fires, the mayors, the crime, she sought out the ordinary and drew out their stories. While most hoped not to be a target of some of our stories, all celebrated being in one of Aleta’s. It was common to hear on the weekends, people talking about the latest Aleta feature.”
Throughout her career she believed passionately that everyone has a story to tell and immediately put people at ease in the telling while she ...
CP Explains: How bodies are identified by the authorities - Salmon Arm ObserverThursday, April 12, 2018
That’s often the easiest and quickest way to identify a body,” said Dr. Matt Bowes, chief medical examiner for Nova Scotia.Another option is using genetic matching. The problem is that it can take time to get the DNA comparisons done.“You want to give information to families quickly and you want to figure things out as quickly as you can, so it’s always at the moment thinking what is the best approach to take,” Huyer said.Related: Dyed hair a factor in Humboldt bus crash victim mix-upWhat difficulties did the Saskatchewan coroner face in the bus crash?The situation in Saskatchewan was complex for several reasons. One of them was the large number of victims who had suffered terrible injuries that rendered them less recognizable. Further compounding the problem was that the teammates had dyed their hair blond for the playoffs, were of similar age and similar build.“In addition to that, the coroner is probably under a tremendous amount of pressure to clear the scene for obvious reasons of compassion,” Bowes said. “Nobody likes to stand in the way of reuniting of the family and the loved one. This is certainly the kind of thing where an error could occur.”Given the frailties inherent in any identification process, errors can and do occur, Bowes said.“They’re famous in our community,” he said. “They’re one of the things we’re very mindful of.”In one case, a man in Toronto was hit by a commuter train in 2004 and a visual identification by his sister was done. The family was at the funeral, when the man himself arrived at the sister’s house to say he wasn’t dead. “That would be one of the most extraordinary examples in Canadian history,” Bouwer said.What should be done when ID mistakes do happen.The important thing is to be very upfront and honest about what happened, Bowes said. He gave authorities in Saskatchewan credit for doing just that.“We all have to remember these things do happen,” Bowes said. “Most people are tremendously forgiving when you’re humble and forthcoming with your error.”Bowes also suggested a staff meeting to re-examine standard operating procedures to see what might have been done differently to prevent a recurrence of the mix-up. Even the best written procedures can be rewritten, he said.Fortunately, the situation in Saskatchewan is an extraordinarily rare circumstance in Canada, Bowes said.“A mass-fatality event with 15 dead is almost unknown in Canada. You can practically count them on the fingers of your hands. They are rare.”Colin Perkel, The Can...
Cornwall and Area Death Notices - Cornwall Seaway NewsThursday, April 12, 2018
Your ability to make a career of your passion (flying), your role at the core of a happy family and your deep love of jazz continue to shape all of our lives. Bruce Burgess was born in Amherst Nova Scotia in 1932, son of Clifford Burgess and Eva Trueman. He volunteered, at the age of 18, to join the Royal Canadian Air Force at the start of the cold war, serving from 1951 to 1987, as a jetfighter pilot. During flight training he was the recipient of the JD Siddley trophy for best performance, receiving his commission as a Pilot Officer in the RCAF in 1952. He served two tours in Germany, initially flying CF-86 sabres with 434 Squadron in Zweibrucken from 1953-54 and then returning to command 441 and 439 Squadrons flying CF-104 starfighters in Lahr and Baden-Sollingen from 1969-72. After his first tour overseas he married his high-school sweetheart and lifelong love, Faith Marie Mill, in December 1954. Returning to Canada from Europe in 1954 he served in the Overseas Ferry Unit, flying small single-engined fighters across the Atlantic to Europe from Longeueil, Quebec. Postings through the late 50s and early 60s saw him training the RCAF’s (and NATO’s) growing cadre of pilots in Portage la Prairie, Saskatoon and Gimli. His experience with accident investigation within the Flight Safety Directorate in Ottawa from 1965-68 helped initiate safety procedures that dramatically brought down the accident rate amongst new jet pilots. After a year’s study in Staff College in Kingston and operational training in Chatham and Cold Lake, Bruce Burgess returned to Europe, commanding 441 and 439 reconnaissance squadrons flying CF-104s in Germany and studying with the Royal Air Force Warfare College at RAF Manby in 1...
